Recreational Class Descriptions Ages 8-10
We are proud to offer a variety of classes for our 8-10 year old recreational students. These classes are taught at the same high standard as our competitive level classes, without the higher degree of commitment required from the dancers. Students enrolled in our recreational programs do not need any prior dance experience, and can choose from classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Hip Hop. Our warm and supportive class environment ensures the dancers build not only on their dance technique, but also their self esteem and confidence. Dancers learn class etiquette and discipline while making friends, developing body awareness, musicality, rhythm, strength and flexibility.
Our 45-minute/week recreational class tuition is $65/month, and the recital costume fee is $85/class. A discount of 5% is offered to students taking 2 classes, and 10% for students enrolled in 3 or more classes.
Our ballet classes follow the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus with fully certified teachers, and will help the dancers develop good posture, strength, flexibility, discipline, musicality and a love of dance. Ballet is highly recommended for all dancers who are just starting out, and is essential for those 8 years and over who want to take their dance training more seriously.
In Tap, students will learn a combination of Al Gilbert and ADAPT tap syllabus, encouraging a progressive build in technique and the understanding of basic rhythms, timings and tap steps. Students will enjoy this high-energy class as they develop co-ordination, and strengthen their legs and feet.
In Jazz, students will learn using a combination of syllabus to develop their technique, focus, musicality and flexibility. Jazz classes are high energy and will keep your dancer moving from start to finish, learning warm ups, barre work, centre floor exercises and technical combinations.
In Hip Hop, dancers enjoy learning current and urban movement in always age appropriate combinations and work across the floor. Hip Hop is a high energy class sure to develop rhythm and musicality in students.
